Can I cancel my trip because of the Europe Travel Alert?

Travel insurance will not cover you to cancel your trip because of the Europe Travel Alert unless you have Cancel For Any Reason coverage.

Unfortunately, a government-issued travel alert is not a covered reason to cancel a trip on standard travel insurance policies. The threat of terrorism and “potential risks” of travel are not enough to trigger a policy’s terrorism coverage. Travelers with the Cancel For Any Reason upgrade can cancel for any reason, including fear of traveling to a destination with a travel alert. However, travelers who cancel using the Cancel For Any Reason upgrade must do so at least 2-3 days before their departure date and will only be reimbursed up to 75% of their trip cost.
